Automating conversion to PDF

By SciFiMan ·
Just purchased the full Acrobat for Windows. Does anyone know of a way (scripts or ?) that would let us automatically have files such as Word, Publisher, MS Project, etc. converted into PDF format? Possibly other software? W2K, Solaris, and Linuxavailable here. An example would be a user finishes a Word document and saves it to a shared folder. A script periodically looks in the folder, pulls out any files, converts them to PDF and saves them somewhere else. Thanks!

Would a vb or dos based batch file do it for you?

The Distiller module included with Adobe Acrobat will automatically convert any print files for you. Set up a Postscript printer (print to file) on users PC using the software provided on CDROM. Run Distiller continuously on PC with Acrobat. Distiller requires "watched folders" to be set - this can be on network and available to all. Watched folders include an IN and an OUT. Users print to IN folder and pdf file appears in OUT folder. Not much detail in this but maybe enough to search for answers in Acrobat help docs.
